WASTE COST LITE ‘WasteCost lite’

  • BRE’s waste statistics are of interest to BRE and other waste agencies, industry engages with waste statistics if companies and projects are looking for KPI and EPI data.
  • Simons Construction have demonstrated that waste segregation costs more money but saves considerably more.
  • Over a weekend BrianSpecMan of National Green Specification (NGS) took BRE and Simons data and turned it into simple calculator that takes minutes to complete, indicating the size of the project, choosing a construction method, selecting which waste will be segregated, and modifying default waste stream disposal costs to your local services costs.
  • WasteCost lite then instantaneously gives the answer to 3 questions:
    • 1 how much will it cost to dispose of the waste from the project?
    • 2 how much will is cost to segregate waste from the project? The QS and buying department usually give up at this point
    • 3 how much will it save by segregating the waste? And now they will engage.
  • NGS gave the tool to BRE and said this is what industry wants and this is what you need to create.
  • 3 years later BRE created their version, its more accurate but it takes a day to get results.
  • WRAP have their own tool it takes even longer to get more accurate results.
  • By which time the QS left the building

Relevance to Sustainable Construction:

Either you are:

  • BRE and collect data and inform Government
  • WRAP and collect waste diverted from landfill tonnage data and inform Government
  • Or you understand the cost of waste and engage with its reduction
